The electronic air spring: Our Ultrasound Height and Pressure Sensor (UHPS) enables the height of vehicles to be adjusted. The ultrasound technology measures the height and the pressure of the air springs and continuously sends the exact values to the electronic control unit. This electronic monitoring process prevents unnecessary energy losses from the air springs by automatically keeping the ride height at the target value – a technology that opens up new possibilities for the sector.
A glimpse into the future
We’re already thinking one step ahead: In the future, UHP sensors will be used not just to precisely measure the height and air pressure of the spring, but also to detect and transmit signals in the event of overload and disruption. These signals will reduce unexpected defects and thus vehicle downtime, as well as the risk of accidents. In a nutshell, we use anticipatory maintenance to ensure greater safety on the roads.
